Super power most cherished by some people, but it works like magic, if I possible I would like to build on instincts and abilities.
I would like super power that can make me excel in my endeavours of lives.
No, I don't.

I'd choose INVISIBILITY, messing with my friends and enemies would be so much fun.

Im dying to see the faces ravi and tess

Hello Ahmed alhayfani

You can see them in the pictures on each episode. On episodes 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, you can see Carolina. On episodes 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9, you can see Tess and Ravi (or sometimes just one of them).

All the best

Thank you guys for one more series!It was such amazing.
Now I am really looking foward to the next one.Thanks.
I think a cool super power would be able to fly!It would be amazing.

Thank you tess and ravi, your voice always makes my Morning better.

I suppose, I am dying to have a ability for making people around me happy and funny, because ,to my mind, happiness- the most important thing in our life.

How good to listen to Gordon again! Wow, he’s more talkative than has been before. He said he had a position as a sound producer in a documentary that’s about whales. I wish I saw what he did while the trip. I mean lots of whales just right in front of you, so close. Someday I visited Oceanarium in my home city where I saw real delphins. That’s was really amazing.
I liked how the quiz was led. Ravi seems to be wishing be better than Tess and always say she takes easier topics in quiz than he is, therefore he has less score than Tess. This time he got 0-5 score. He did his best, even tried to press the button earlier then Tess, disregarding he hadn’t any right answer. Happily that’s was just a joke. Nice to see his reaction.
Answering the question about what superpower would you like to have, I’d say it’s flying definitely. Just imagine when you fly, you can see everything around from big height. The world seems much more beautiful if you look at it like birds do. Fields, trees, lakes and buildings seems so cute and beautiful like in a picture.
Thanks a lot for this series.

What a question! I would like to be able to heal people with a touch. Alleviating the others suffering must be absolutely fantastic!
Thank you very much for this series, all the characters are so lovely! I like Tom's explanations, he is really an excellent teacher.

I love joke's Gordon!
